I’ve been taking photographs since I was a little girl. However, I didn’t start calling myself a photographer until I was in my twenties. Prior to that, I assumed that I had to have a degree in the arts to call myself a photographer. I made the same assumption about writing too. Luckily, I realized that isn’t true. To understand a subject, you don’t need a formal degree. But you do need determination, grit, and the willingness to keep learning throughout your life.

Below you’ll find some of my recent Instagram photos. They were taken with my iPhone. Enjoy!
